We, the Class of 1916, Dedicate this,
our Crimson, to a man that is worthy of
our highest esteem, because of his care
for us as students and his untiring de-
votion to our Alma Mater, William James
Mutch, Ph. D.
With the passing of another year comes the CRIMSON. A
reminder that our life in school is a series of ends, the semesters and
the years creep upon us unawares, we are in the second before we have
comprehended the first and according to the senior we are through
when we are just beginning to enjoy and appreciate college life.
There are times however when we are forced in spite of our
hurry to look back; one such is the coming of the CRIMSON. In
reviewing this school year, our first and last aim has been, to be
representative, to give a natural and spontaneous expression of the
school life. If we have not attained this end to the degree that you
would desire, we remind you that it is not entirely our fault. The
staff and the class have done their share well, they are a limited
number however and cannot be everywhere at once and see everything
that happens. So if you have not contributed your share, please be
lenient in your adverse criticism.
We wish to thank all those people outside of the junior class
that have kindly contributed to the book also the Hammersmith Co.
for the printing and engraving of this annual in such a satisfactory
AST BUILDING was built in the time when college
donations were made not in money but in lime, labor and
lumber. The stakes for this the first building of our
college were driven in the year eighteen hundred and
fifty. At first it had two recitation rooms, the remainder
serving as a men's dormitory until school was discontinued upon the
outbreak of the war in the year eighteen sixty-one, then the campus
was turned into a camp for the Wisconsin Cavalry.
During the following years Middle College and West were
built and East Building became old fashioned. In eighteen eighty-two
it was renovated, changing the second floor from a library into a
music department, making a chapel out of the first floor and adding
the East Wing for a college office.
Middle College, which is now called Smith Hall, was built in
the year eighteen sixty. At first it was used as a dormitory for men
and women. When the school reopened after the war it was used
as a women's dormitory and continued as such until the year nineteen
hundred and one. During this time the basement was furnished as
a dining hall. In the year nineteen hundred and one the hall was
entirely changed and refurnished as a men's dormitory, and called
Smith Hall in memory of the late Elisha D. Smith of Menasha.
West Hall was the third building of the College, built in the
year eighteen sixty-seven. It was first intended to house the library,
recitation rooms and chapel, the large basement was furnished as a
gymnasium, the remains of which still exists.
In the year eighteen eighty-two the chapel and library were
removed to the remodelled East Building and the two upper floors
of West Hall were furnished for a men's dormitory, later the first
floor was made into a modern dining room. The Commons is the
great meeting place of the student body. Three times a day we come
together around its tables.
Bartlett Cottage was built in the year eighteen eighty-eight, from
its first opening it has been a home for the women students of Ripon.
It is called Bartlett in honor of the late Mr. Sumner Bartlett of
Bartlett is situated in the most pleasant spot of the campus. For
years, as an institution, it has been one of the greatest factors in our
college life, because it is here that most of the young women of the
Ingram Hall, completed in the year nineteen hundred, and named
after one of the principal donors, Mr. O. H. Ingram of Eau Claire,
is the main lecture room of the college and contains the College
Library. On the first floor are situated the offices, the lecture rooms,
and laboratories of the departments of Biology and Physics. The
second floor is occupied by the lecture rooms and the reading room of
the library. On the third floor are the chemical laboratories and the
lecture rooms of the departments of Philosophy.
We consider this gymnasium one of the best in the state. The
central portion of the indoor athletic field has a hardwood floor, 80 by
50 feet, marked for basketball, indoor baseball, and tennis. Around
the floor is a running track seventeen laps to a mile, with an earth
floor. The south section contains locker rooms and shower baths.
The plans for the completed building include two large wings,
which will contain all the essential features of a modern gymnasium.

A Soph omore's Advice
To you verdant Freshman I'm writing
This ditty: it's not long or bright.
For you my experience I'm citing,
That you may win out in the fight.
When at night, at your table you're sitting,
And over your back streams the light,
Just think of the knowledge you're getting.
If you'll study, you'll come out all right.
You're not the first freshman's had sorrow
Alone in the gloom of his thought.
How oft have I wished for the morrow.
Experience dearly is bought.
You're not the first one that's had trouble ;
You're not the first homesick boy ;
You're not the first one seeing double,
Who thought he'd had grief 'thout alloy.
I've often lonesomely sat there,
With no one my troubles to tell ;
With sorrow which none other could share.
But all has now come out well.
So Freshie, just check your impatience;
A Sophomore is really your friend.
He's been thru strife and thru turmoil.
Heed advice — you'll win in the end.
The Ripon Sckool of Music
The School of Music at Ripon College has been fortunate in having had in the
past years musicians of national reputation. At the present time this is no less true.
The teachers on the faculty of this school are instructors of widely-known ability.
They are keenly alive to all that takes place in the progress of music education. Of
late years the progress made in this school has been notable. Today, there is at Ripon
College a School of Music which is up to date in methods of instruction, and in arrange-
ment of its courses. Serious work is demanded of its students, and the result is that
its graduates are sought for and are filling good positions as teachers, organists, concert
pianists, violinists, church and concert singers, and supervisors of Public School Music.

Tine Football Squad
1914 "R" Men
HE 1914 football season was a remarkable success taking into consideration
that the team was built around six old men from the seasons before.
From the standpoint of games won and lost it was not quite as successful
as we might have desired. Nevertheless out of the eight games played,
we won four, lost three and tied one.
On September 26 the "Crimson" team defeated Oshkosh High School with but
a week's training by a score of 26 to 0. The game was not very fast at first but the
boys soon found themselves. It was evident in this game that with the old men and
the wealth of material in the freshman class that Ripon had the making for a strong
team. After a week of very hard work on the part of Coach Lambert with the new
men the "Crimson" eleven easily defeated Oshkosh Normal by a score of 7 to 19 on
their own field. In this game, team work was lacking especially in the first half but
before the game was over the boys all showed their calibre on the gridiron.
The following Saturday, October 10, Ripon journeyed to Dubuque where she
added another scalp by winning from them by a score of 6 to 32.
After two weeks of hard work the team feeling that they were going to be out-
classed traveled to Milwaukee and defeated Marquette on October 24 by a score of
On the 31st of October, Ripon met her first defeat in a hard fought battle against
Beloit by a score of 14 to 0. Ill luck on the side of the "Crimson" and the fact that
overconfidence had reigned supreme that week gave the game to Beloit.
The greatest surprise for years was sprung on November 7th by Northwestern
who held us to a no score game.
The Lawrence game was as usual the climax of the season, a fight to the finish,
every man doing his utmost. Though the score went against us 12 to 2, we left the
field a satisfied crowd, for we had seen a good fight. The season was closed with the
Carroll game played at Waukesha, where football men turned into pugilists.
With the thought that we are going to lose only one man of this team, we may
look forward with confidence to the next season.

"The Maid of Philiopolis"
The International Octette."
A College Mother Goose
As I was going along, long, long.
I whistled a bit of a song, song, song,
For a campus where trees and benches throng
Has often lovers its way along, long.
So I whistled a bit of a song, song, song,
To warn I was coming along, long, long.
Simple youth and simple maiden,
Just a heedless pair
Said the youth unto the maiden,
"Kiss me if you dare."
Said the maiden to the tempter,
"Well because 1 promised"
"Here's JUST ONE," so said the maiden,
"Just because I'm honest."
Willie's step is light as air
Coming down the Bartlett stairs,
He has no wish to linger there,
Is she fickle Willie Shelinan?
Maunders, you know, could eat no fat.
Maunders could eat no lean.
But when the rest had finished, 'tis said,
He licked the platter clean.
Bow ! wow ! wow !
Whose dog art thou ?
Little Shervin Willman's dog.
Bow ! wow ! wow !
How pretty the house that Jack built,
But Jack, poor lad, is all forlorn,
His heart with love is tattered and torn,
For Myrtle another's ring has worn
While Jack was getting his house built.
Bye baby bunting,
Bunney's gone a-hunting,
Not for a little rabbit skin,
But any girl young Jones can win.

There was a young fellow named Harry
In East Building he loved to tarry.
The boys saw him one day,
"Was machst du?" said they.
And ever since then he's been wary
The Annual Class Scrap
N Saturday afternoon, the 19th of September, the Sophomore Class de-
feated the Freshmen on the lower campus. At ten minutes past two,
Referee Beck assembled the belligerent classes and elucitated the entire
code of law in essence and .detail. This law is based on the natural and
inalienable rights of man, and purposes to put individual as well as class
security and welfare upon a sound bases. Acting upon this benevolent impulse the use
of spurs, bowee knives and bomb dropping dirigibles was discouraged as being deleterious
to health and happiness. Strangle holds, kidney punches, and bareback polevaulting
were expounded as highly effective tactics.
Prior to the fracas the ranks of the freshmen had been considerably thinned by
the enforced absense of the most warlike members of the class. The combatants had
been put into the custody of the sophomores on the morning of the conflict, and were
lying hopelessly and helplessly bound in the hay mound of President Evans's barn, the
members of the football squad were also prohibited from participating in the scrap.
Lambert could not afford to have the gods of the gridiron injured.
At two-twenty the referee sent both armies to their respective trenches, sounded
his whistle, and the tilt was on. The freshmen charged down hill with heads and
antlers lowered, while the second-year men assembled around the flag. The yearlings
plunged into the defences and carried them at the point of the bayonet. A mad rush
for the pole ensued. Each collegiate strippling singled out his nearest adversary and
the carnage became hand to hand. Shirt tails, dust patches of skin, uprooted hair and
tense excitement filled the air, while the sophomore banner waved tranquilly over the
death grapple as if in mockery. Occasionally a freshman would hurdle the mass and
climb the pole within a few feet of the coveted flag, but the defending sophomores
invariably disrobed him, forcing him to slide down out of sight. Not once during the
melee did the freshmen approach within dangerous distance of the second-year emblem.
The entire struggle was a repetition of charges and repulses. Because of the intense
heat the endurance of the contestants vaned rapidly, and towards the close of the twenty-
minute encounter the majority lay limp and breathless on the greensward. At two-
forty the final whistle blew with the 1917 banner still streaming over the heads of
the exhausted belligerents.
HEN the door is opened, rush in and beat everyone else to a place. You
can't sit down, but you can get a line on what is to be served, so that you
may formulate an effective criticism.
Immediately on being seated, consume all food in sight, such as bread, pickles, etc.
They are put on the table for pacifiers, "piece de resistance" is on its way.
If the waiter does not appear at once, use the hardware for hammers and pound
on the dishes. Such music supplements beautifully the widely advertised Commons
When the waiter appears, greet him with appetite sharpening witicisms, holding
your knife and fork poised in the air.
When the grub is placed on the table, attack it with voracity. Your very life
depends on your being the first to ply the toothpick.
When the waiter is moving at top speed, order everything you can think of at the
same time from mustard to more water. He is in the business for his health, the more
trips he has to make to the kitchen, the merrier.
During the meal use all the pickles, baked botatoes, etc., for ammunition, there
is a surplus provided for just that purpose, and the dining room girls delight in picking
If you are dissatisfied with the meal on general principles, abuse Wensink, that's
what he is there for.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF —
Norman started a petition to fire Prexy?
The CRIMSON came out without saying something about Carp's chasing?
You saw Morey with a grouch on ?
Coffeen got interested in some outside activity?
You happened to meet Franc without Currie ?
Natalie started to talk in a whispering tone?
Bob McClain happened to stay up until nine-thirty some night?
You heard that Stouss had refused an invitation to dine at the Woodside Club?
Some Things We Would Like To Knoxtf
In Regard To tke Faculty
What he thinks of Wilson, Roosevelt.
His opinion on materialism, militarism.
What he thinks of the man that destroys college property.
Whether he allows freshmen to tip chairs against the wall.
Whether he ever lived in Indiana.
His opinion of the Studebaker car.
If he is going to join the prohibition league.
Her opinion of Bishop Quayle and the Methodist church in general.
How much he enjoys the one o'clock history class.
If she has any thoughts for Ireland.
If he has forgotten his favorite story.
How she likes the singing at chapel.
In General :
How they all enjoy sitting on the platform during chapel time.
THINGS WE HEAR IN CHAPEL.
Students work too hard. Get gossipping habit. Be curious. Yield to tempta-
tion on the right side. I would like to write a book on "The Function of Fun" and
dedicate it to Deans. We have too much delegated athletics in our colleges.
Um sieben uhr one Freitag night
Twenty Maedchen nahmen flight
To the basement of the Halle.
Sugar, vinegar and all
Took sie mit, taffy zu machen,
Fuehlten gut, so alle lachten.
All things fertig war'n below,
Teller, buttered, in ein row,
Candy kocht bald auf den stove
Nach die Maedchen da arrove-,
Und im naechsten Zimmer gingen,
Hoffnertd all ein prize zu fingen,
Alle Maedchen ausser zwei,
Guessing contest there to try.
Taffy kocht — wie gut es schmelt!
Alle zwanzig hungrig felt.
Fertig bald, on 'foresaid Teller
Koch es steikt, und vor den cellar
Window stellt es um zu kuehlen.
Mit den fingers often fuehlen,
Wollten dass es fertig waere,
Dass sie bald nach anderen kehre.
Grosse noise im andern Zimmer
Zeigt das prize to be ein "bimmer."
Aber weh! auch ach ! und woe!
Unterm Fenstern liegen low
Viele Knaben — grosse Baengeln
Will nicht gehen nach den Engeln ! —
Swiped six Teller off den sill
And sneaked with them up the hill !
Maedchen shrieked, got all excited,
But those Knaben — Menschen benighted —
Cared not for that, dachten nur
Dass die Taffy heiss war, sure !
Maedchen zwei nach Stadte gehen
Mehre vinegar um zu flehen !
Machten Taffy once more yet,
Knaben won't get this, you bet!
Aben Knaben wachset bolder
Waited till it got some colder
Than die andere, und then took it
From the very hand that shook it !
Maedchen shrieked once more already —
Would have schlagt those Knaben deady!
Out they rushed, but Knaben sly
Mussten all nach Hause fly.
Halten, doch ein Teller dropped,
Found in dirt and snow geflopped,
Maedchen brought it schnell nach Hause —
Dirt and branches macht nichts aus.
Pulled it schoen und macht es rot
Mit ein bischen colorin' dope.
Laufen schnell red pepper holen,
Put in candy to be stolen,
Cut it up in kleinen stuecken,
Put on sill und wenden Ruecken.
Machten Licht low und weggehen
In dark Halle bleiben stehen!
Kamen Knaben, seizen Taffy,
Think those Maedchen surely daffy.
Put it in their mouths first crack —
Taste the pepper — put it back !
Andere Knaben come and steal it —
Eat red pepper and still feel it!
Maedchen aber gingen hinauf —
Caren nicht for weitern Lauf,
Essen viel Salat und Kuchen,
Photos take, und Betten suchen.
Knaben setten up und drink —
Drown the pepper — so they think !
Pepper rot — a nickel's worth —
Makes of heat no little dearth !
Maedchen frohen sich und lachen
Weil auf Knaben they have Rachen !

With the Glee Club
We miss :
Dexter's brilliant ( ?) deeds,
Mother Goose Rhymes,
Pink's black hair,
We still have:
The eccliastical billiard sharks with a supplement,
Girls we have met before,
Simm's pink cheeks,
A host of Robertses,
Owens saying "I cawnt sing."
ECHOES FROM THE GLEE CLUB TOUR.
March 26. After shaking the moth balls and red pepper from their suits, the
Glee Club journeyed to far off Rosendale to make their initial appearance, Kind Fate
left the turnips in the cellar but "Chuck" thought discretion the better part, and left
for Fondy on the first train. Fanning and Gloze Roberts finally succeeded in sending
Ely and Dusen off to bed, Bobbin visits the folks back on the old farm and shows his
knowledge of fine cattle, Dick was glad to see him'.
April 1. The club again appear but at Brandon. Here the octette do the light
fantastic for a curtain raiser and amuse Mrs. Bintliff by their adept juggling of "Little
Orphant Annie." Page brings down the house by announcing Mr. Wilson singing
that Roberts song and calling for Mr. Neena to play the accompaniment. The Bartlett
serenaders mix their cues and give the audience a double dose of the Alma Mater.
Slow curtain, and the club left for parts unknown April 3rd. Will any kind person
who finds them direct them on their way back to the classic halls of their college?
(Due to the fact that the "Crimson" goes to press on time this will be continued
in our next.)

Oh ! man of wisdom ! Man of deep mystery
All scholars love thee, thou art a curse to me.
Thy odes are jewels, slow to sparkle,
Slow, when Miss Goodrich assigns forty lines.
A cute little kid is Miss Currie,
But always in such a great hurry
That no one but Franc
Can stay in her rank ;
All she says is, "Oh, Gee! I should worry."
"Men are not good looking, if a woman tells you so, you can take it for granted
that she is working you." — Quale in chapel.
Boardman likes baked potatoes and hash
And he goes after beans with a dash.
Should he kick on the chuck,
'Twould give Skink such a shock
That he'd faint dead away in a flash.
